Bello Benischauer is an independent artist (Australia/Austria) and co-founder of ART IN PROCESS, working across installation, video and performance art.

All his digital work is distributed by CAM Contemporary Arts Media (www.artfilms.com.au). He toured a solo-exhibition in Australia from 2008 to 2011 and developed many AIR projects internationally, recently in Vienna and Sydney. He created a Commissioned Work for the LIA Lab Inter Arts, Mozarteum University Salzburg in 2010.

Artist Statement

We critically engage with a number of issues/behaviours specific to cross-cultures and consumer culture in our work and develop projects that use new media/technology as a fusing and transmitting element.
